: where is america 2012, 236 years after its birth, and where is it going? the challenge for the next administration are both immediate and deep. no great country has sustained its position without a strong economic foundation. the new president and new congress must deal with the fiscal cliff, partisan gridlock has prevented us from making the hard decisions about where we need to spend and where we need to cut and how we bridge a growing economic inequality. while we remain the richest country in the world, the global economic order is rebalancing. the application of american power is changing as we have seen in the response to the arab spring. old alliances need redefining. the pivot to the east demands understanding between china and the united states and the realization that it is not a zero-sum game but also problems that transcend relationships among nations, questions of climate change, global health and the progress of science. science and technology are giving us extraordinary insight into who we are and how much we share. they have enormous power for both state and non-stat
>>> good morning, america. and this morning, four more years. after the most intense, expensive and closely-fought campaign in history, president obama triumphs. >> we have picked ourselves up. we have fought our way back. and we know in our hearts, that for the united states of america, the best is yet to come. >> the president seals his victory with crucial wins across the battlegrounds. a bitter loss for governor romney, met by grace. >> this is a time of great challenges for america. and i pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation. >> congress, still deadlocked. republicans win the house, democrats, the senate. our powerhouse political team on what the next four years means for your family, your jobs and your future. "gma's" special coverage of election 2012 starts, right now. >>> and good morning, america. good morning to robin roberts at home. great to have elizabeth vargas back with us this morning. the whole team is here. and what a night. president obama secures a second term. >> with a surprisingly sweeping victory. the president said he learned
will be the united states of america. >> just getting a little update here. i'll tell you in a minute on florida, but welcome back to our special second hour of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's see where we stand this hour and how the president night. the president put together a decisive victory last night. falling short of the votes he won in 2008 against john mccain. but he had 303. romney 206. florida's are still on the technically remain too close to call. miami-dade county is counting 20,000 absentee ballots they tell us. that's what they're counting right now. that's in miami-dade. that largest chunk of vote. if that breaks away the way they're going, it's impossible. i guess nothing's impossible. president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is s if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's what the county map looksnow. i'll go to 2008. if anything, he did better in coal country as you
a change in america in 2006, 2007, even before barack obama became president. i think there is more willingness to understand the story, but the story has not been told. it is the story of the europeans, the indians, and the africans building america. the kinsey collection and our family has gone about trying to say we are part of this story and that narrative is a powerful narrative of accomplishment and triumphed. over the past six years, we have been able to reach 3 million people. i mean, we have just had so many actions, so many cities, so many museums, and the general response has ben, "we did not know that." that is what we start with any time we do a performance. we want you to leave and say, i did not know that. that started in 1600, and we take you to the incredible people, whose lives were lost in obscurity. we have taken them out of their graves and given them a personality, a name, a voice. tavis: why for you has this been such a passionate project? i have known you for many years. both of you knew have found that as well enough off to sit in retirement where you want,
for america. guest: i think he is right on one thing. the fannie mae and freddie mac meltdown was certainly caused by the house in bubble. that has done a great disservice -- was done a great disservice by congress in encouraging lending to those individuals who did not have sufficient downpayment or did not have the wherewithal to guarantee they would be able to pay back their mortgage loans. that certainly created a house in bubble. -- housing bubble. that did start at the end of the bush administration. we are now four years past the start of the obama administration, and i think we have had sufficient time to address the concerns. the fact is, the economy has not improved. we have averaged over 8% unemployment for the entire term of president obama's tenure in office. we have to continue to look for change, could change that will create those jobs and get this economy moving again. we will address the tremendous debt this country has, $16 trillion in debt, increased over $5 trillion under president obama. if we have another four years of president obama, our national debt will exceed $2
or the economy or america's standing in the world. these are the ones who have recklessly ignored the fact we cannot keep running trillion dollar deficits every year. somebody suggests that maybe the taxpayers should not keep subsidizing every last program. their reckless and idiotic approach threatens our very future. anyone who is serious about solving the problems we face should ignore all of that, starting with the president. the election is over, but the economy and fiscal problems of the past several years have only gotten worse. it is time for the president to present a plan that rises above these reckless and radical voices on the hard left, that goes beyond the talking points of the campaign trail, and that has a realistic chance of passing the congress. the time for campaigning is over. it is time for the president to lead. a little over a week ago, i attended a meeting with the president at the white house that was positive and productive. afterwards, i was confident that all sides were eager to figure out a solution to the challenges. as i've said repeatedly, the only person in am
for a while in central america and i had some friends who worked for drug interdiction for the united states government. i asked them sit true that about 2.7 sents out of ever dollar on drug interdiction does the job. they said yes that's right. if you're in the drug biz or thinking about going into the drug business, think about this for a minute. >> well if i go into the drug business, i have a 97% chance of success. if you compare that to the chance of failure if you do a legitimate start up anywhere in the world. what you have to asay to yourself is if you have a 97% chance of going into the drug business then why not, let's go do it. 97% of all the money we spend on drug interdiction is going down the rat hole. if we made it legal, we would as you pointed out the drug cartels we would put a serious dent in them and they might i go away. we would be able to tax it. if you look at the states that have medical marijuana in this country it is now understood that the marijuana legalization is helping lift those committees out of their own recessions. >> is it time to end the prohibition? >>
a word that you are saying. [laughter]. >> going in the right direction. america loves what obama is doing for our country. he has it going for us and we just hope everyone can work together and unite this country together. >> reporter: thank you very much. [crowd yelling]. yelling]. >> all right. that's the celebration in the heart of washington, d. c. and urban areas and places where there was a lot of diversity and put president obama over the top in this election. when you look at the vote count it will show that president lost with white men but won big with latinos and huge with african americans and was able to use the gender gap and won a majority of the women voters. >> the youth vote also critical and so many made their opinions known or facebook and twitter. let's go to kristin. >> reporter: as you can imagine today, twitter, facebook was just blowing up. everybody voicing their opinions, sharing pictures and whatnot. i'm joined by web producer simon lamb. this is called the trends map. it shows you what people are tweeting about. right before it was announced obama has

in virginia? guest: a very good question. virginia was once the ticket splitting capital of america literally. this was back in the 1970's. we have three elected offices -- governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general. we actually had at the same time and republican governor, independent the tenant governor and democratic attorney general. one of our two u.s. senators was an independent, elected twice. an independent missed winning the governorship by 15,000 votes over a million passed in 1973. we were the ticket splitting capital of america. we have cents settled back into partisan voting with the rest of america. this is a very polarized era. having said that, when you have close elections you still have a band of voters who will mix and match on the ballot, either because they want to mix and match or they are simply reacting to the individual candidates. in the case of romney and kaine, i have personally been in situations where straw votes were taken among large groups and you generally find you have 3, 4, 5% of the romney boaters picking tim kane for various reasons. some of these ro
